Welcome to Lorne McIntosh's Portfolio. I'm a computer scientist from Vancouver Canada with interests in software engineering, 2D/3D computer graphics, artificial intelligence and game development. I recently completed my M.Sc. in Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University, and I'm currently a software developer at Absolute Software.
This week I'm excited to be starting my new position as a Software Engineer at Absolute Software in Vancouver. I'll be on the Business Applications team, responsible for the on-going design, development and support of the company's business-critical systems.
After more than a year of trying unsuccessfully to enter Vancouver's declining videogame industry I decided to return my career focus to business software. Thankfully this direction proved immediately more fruitful and last week I started my new position as an Application Developer at Aptean.
It's been a busy 5 years since my last post here (the inaccurate title of which, I now have to laugh at). Since then I've left Pivotal, launched Ubiq Visuals, started and finished grad school (M.Sc. thesis, summary video), published a computer graphics paper, and spent the last couple months exploring Fiji, New Zealand and Hawaii.
I'm back in Vancouver and on the job market now, looking for interesting opportunities in software development. Get in touch with me if you know of anything.
